Cemetery notes and/or description:
This still active community cemetery is part of the Horeb Baptist Church. Originally Fulsoms Creek Church, which was organized in June 28, 1792. The church was renamed Horeb Baptist Church in 1798. The church moved to its present site in 1799. As was the custom in Georgia before the Civil War, blacks attended regular church services with whites. In 1870, the minutes record that the members were helping their African American brethren build their own meeting place, which became Union Church. After serving the Mayfield community and surrounding area for 200 years, Horeb Church ended its regular services in 1992. Trees planted by the congregation in 1886 still line the driveway to the church and cemetery.
Directions:
From the Hancock County Courthouse, go northeast for 2.6 miles on Hwys 22/15 to the Hwy 22/15 split. Turn right on Hwy 22 and travel 4.8 miles to Covey Rise Farm Rd. Turn right and follow Covey Rise Farm Rd for 4.5 miles until it dead ends into Powelton Church Rd. Turn right and go 0.5 mile to the cemetery on your left behind the church.
